New Talent to replace Christensen in Chelsea

Andreas Christensen

Myriads of new young talents are coming across Europe to play the highest level of football. From Haland to Odegard, Phoden to Frenkie de Jong, from Ferran Torres to Pedri each one pf them is a treat to watch.

Perhaps a new name to add in this list is that of Levi Colwill. According to former Chelsea winger Paul Canoville, Chelsea have already had a potentially better defender to replace Christensen.

Though any official confirmation is yet to come, it’s expected to come in this year’s summer transfer window. Levi Colwill is a young prodigy who currently plays for Huddersfield. He is a defender and according to Paul Canoville he is a far better defender.

The 25 year old is linked with Barca. His contract is going to expire in the upcoming month of June and thus he will be free to move anywhere without any transfer fee.

And it’s Barcelona who are interested in this transfer move. Barca’s new coach Xavi is looking to build a consolidated defence and Christensen may be a big weapon for him.

Meanwhile Switzerland based research group CIES Football Observatory even recently named Colwill as the 2nd highest rated U-20 defender outside Europe’s top 5 leagues.

There are other more defenders who are currently linked to a move towards Stamford Bridge but Thomas Tuchel is likely more interested in Levi Colwill. It’s the next summer’s transfer window that will answer all unknown questions regarding many potential moves and big transfers.
